More bad news for the guv’s plan
Wednesday, May 31, 2006
Have there been any positive editorials or columns about this turkey? From today’s Daily Southtown:
While there may be some financial benefit to privatizing some segments of government, the public shouldn’t be fooled into thinking this plan offers anything more than temporary cash relief. Blagojevich doesn’t have to worry because he probably won’t be governor when this lottery plan runs its course. Maybe the pawn shops will still be open.
Meanwhile, the governor won’t release details about how he arrived at that $10 billion figure.
The Blagojevich administration said Tuesday it won’t release a consultant’s work on how much money the state could make by selling or leasing the state lottery. The administration compared such a move to sharing playbooks with rival sports teams.
He is not inspiring confidence in his plan.
